Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN/NH) has a problem. It all began when he campaigned against Jim Oberstar as out of touch with his district. He claimed that Oberstar actually lived in the Maryland suburbs of DC. He further claimed that Oberstar rarely visited Minnesota. Candidates who make those sort of claims better make themselves very available to their constituents and get lots of face time in their districts.
As everyone knows, Cravaack moved his family to New Hampshire after he beat Oberstar.
Now that he’s spending his spare time with his family in New Hampshire, he doesn’t have quite as much time to spend in the district. So folks in MN-08 have gotten used to these kind of non-meetings their absent Congressman.
U.S. Representative Chip Cravaack (MN District 8) has announced his staff will conduct a mobile office in Atkinson Township from 5-6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 9, at the Carlton County Transportation Building, 1630 County Road 61, Carlton.
“These mobile offices will provide residents throughout the Eighth District an opportunity to meet with members of my staff and discuss matters that are important to them,” said Cravaack.
Cravaack won’t even verify when he’s actually been in the district. He just claims a lot and asks us to believe him.
